Help me please?

From what I understand The poster said he'd use the former rather than the latter, but wouldn't you use the latter. the latter sound better. Which would you say here : THe cat miaowed while it walked/The cat walked while it miaowed.

the former or latter?

What If I say "John sleeps while he sings", or "John sings while he sleeps"(although the latter may actually happen). what kind of mental message do you receive?

how would say this please?

The order would depend on what you are trying to say or emphasize. The main verb is written last and the "extra" action done by the cat (or by John) is written first, when using while as you have used it.

The nanny introduced and enforces rules in an attempt to improve my/our behavior.

hope it helps:)

I think miaowed while it walked because the walking is usually more continuous.(or ongoing)

the former or latter?

A guy with a sleep disorder. Sleep walking would be the most common.

If it is imposed on you or your group I would use we instead of to. Also maybe ... how we live our lives.
thanks
